LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. -- Gwinnett Police are still investigating a home invasion that left one suspect dead Saturday morning.

Police arrived at Wesley St. Claire Apartments on Sweetwater Road around 3:10am to find a man dead outside of the 700 building.

They later discovered the man, 21-year-old Bobby Smith, was in the process of committing a home invasion when he was killed by the homeowner.

Police are still searching for a second man also believed to be involved.

The homeowner, whose name is not being released, apparently knew the two men. Police found no sign of forced entry. Gwinnett Police Sgt. Rich Long said the crime was not random; it appears that apartment was targeted.
